Abstract backgrounds and aliases

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, In : Tips 
Hey all!

Last week, Andrew Price, released a new tutorial on creating abstract backgrounds. I followed this tutorial for Cycles, but in Blender Render and I think it's great that there has been one done on this, because there is such a vast use for such backgrounds, especially if you can think outside the box on these sorts of things. Here's mine:

(Didn't finish the tutorial to see his, because most of it was done in Photoshop and
Cycles has better DOF than Blender Render has, but I like this re...

Caves, how are they made

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Saturday, November 23, 2013, In : General 
Hey all!

I watched and did (for a change) one of Andrew's tutorials yesterday and it was a blast. I struggle intensely in getting the crystal how I wanted, but through a lot of leading, it is how I want it and, I hope you give it a try as well. Naturally, I just finished a book on Procedural Textures, very appropriately named, Procedural textures, and so I was not about to download the textures. Instead, I did the whole thing, from displacement to color, etc, all procedural textures in Cycles....

Hey all!

This morning Andrew sent out the e-mail for the new Blender Guru competition; Christmas!

Anyway, check it out and hopefully we'll see your work there too!

Here is the link to the competition, rules, inspiration etc.

Have a great one and remember to watch the time zone Andrew uses. If at all possible for you, to be sure you are on time, submit at the latest your imag...

Blender Guru Competition time again!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Friday, August 2, 2013, In : Blender Guru Competitions 
Hey all!

It's been a while since Andrew posted a competition, but yesterday it was announced again! This time, he took to the social networks for a theme suggestion. While he has done this in the past, this was the first time I saw this too as a prevailing theme suggestion, along with sci-fi and a few others.

For this edition, we have a more historical approach; Ancient Civilizations! A very broad theme indeed and many many things can pertain to it, but the best part is, your work just has to r...

Still here and workin'!

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, June 12, 2012, In : wip 
Hey peoples!

I haven't dropped off the face of the earth the last week or so.

As you know it's the new Blender Guru Competition and the theme is Photo Realism (yey). I've been hard at work on my entry and because I don't want to give the idea away of what I'm doing, I haven't posted anything here.

I will say this though:
 - I'm using Blender Render,
 - The image only has techniques in that are in the book already and will be added (except for modeling and lighting, since it's a book about texturi...

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen." Revelation 22:18-21
